, back to you. >> problems on both sides of the atlantic tonight. steve, does this downgrade from s&p hit americans' pocketbooks at home or not? >> there's plenty of confusion and concern about that, carl. we've never been in a situation where the world's benchmark debt, the united states, has been downgraded. so anybody who claims to know what they're talking about here probably is making it up. there is concern, though, about interest rates, mortgage interest rates, credit card interest rates, some concern it may go up. but i will tell you, plenty of speculation that the market anticipated this and it will digest this latest bad news with pretty good evenness. >>> michelle and steve, thanks. >>> and there will be special coverage tonight on the markets beginning at 8:00 p.m. eastern time on cnbc. >>> tonight, we're learning more about the attack on a u.s. helicopter in afghanistan that claimed the lives of 30 americans in the deadliest single incident since the 10-year war began. for that, we go to nbc's attia abawi in kabul. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, carl. well, a senior

fluctuated between up and down. nbc's steve handelsman reports. >> reporter: in his first reaction since standard & poor's downgraded u.s. bonds late friday, president obama rejected the double-a plus rating. >> no matter what some agency may say, we've always been and always will be a triple-a country. >> reporter: u.s. stock markets dropped sickeningly. the dow losing 5.55%. the s&p 500, 6.66%. the nasdaq off 6.9%, the biggest drop in years. gold was up to an all-time high, $1,700, a sign investors are scared. by last week's debt ceiling deal, not big or bold enough. >> no one touched entitlement spending or tax reform. until republicans and democrats show an ounce of backbone and actually do what's in the interest of the american people rather than what's in their own immediate political interest, i can't argue with s&p's conclusion. >> reporter: the president said the downgrade could spur on new debt talks. >> our problems are imminently solvable, and we know what we have to do to solve them. >> reporter: that, in turn, pleased the head of standard & poor's. >> it was actually a bit

. nbc's steve handelsman has our report. >> reporter: on his campaign style swing through the midwest. >> you look very trust worthy. >> reporter: president obama was in iowa, the state that put him on the path to the white house in 2008. the path rick perry hopes he's on for 2012. the texas governor was in iowa, targeting barack obama. >> now, mr. president, you tried now for 2 1/2 years of government creating jobs. >> reporter: he brags about his jobs record. texas unemployment is a point lower than the u.s. average. oil companies are profitable, tax revenue has not dropped in texas, and in fact almost all of new texas jobs are government jobs. some call perry reckless. he's standing by this charge against the federal reserve. >> printing more money to play politics at this particular time in american history is almost treasonous in my opinion. >> reporter: the president hosted an economic forum. >> we're going to make it easier for people in rural areas looking for work to find out about companies that are hiring. >> reporter: mitt romney was in new hampshire talking jobs. >> i spe

, it was a struggle. let me start by apologizing to the panelists and especially to steve. unfortunately, i know exactly how to make sure that this event gets zero coverage. and the way to do it is to emphasize this is a very positive story about a $7 billion program that enrolls 900,000 preschoolers, and in washington, good stories just don't sell. so this is a great story. it's a story of scholarly research that showed that head start should be able to produce bigger and more lasting impact on development children than it was typically doing. it's a story of a committee of professionals called somewhat strangely, the committee on redesignation of the head start, that was appointed by republican administration and requirements passed by a democratically controlled congress, and they produce a report offering clear and compelling recommendations about how to improve head start. it's a story of a democratic administration that decided to touch the third rail of american preschool programs, and develop a creative regulation to implement and actually improve the committee's recommendations for refo
